The Balearic Islands are a Spanish archipelago in the western Mediterranean Sea. The main Islands are Mallorca and Menorca in the North, Ibiza and Formentera in the South. The archipelago attracts tourists with its white sandy beaches and rich nightlife, but most importantly — dramatic evidence of shipwrecks available to beginners and experienced divers.
Crystal clear blue waters hide the remains of ships and other machines of different eras. Underwater, beautiful caves with air pockets with stalactite and stalagmite formations, large boulders and limestone rocks await you.
The underwater marine life was preserved in its original form thanks to UNESCO protection. In 1993, the biosphere reserve was founded here, and it is still in operation.
The best time for a visit to the Islands is from July to September when the water temperature reaches +19-24 °C. In a thick wetsuit, you can dive all year round. In fall and spring, rains are heavy. The average temperature is +11 °C in winter and +26 °C in summer. The usual visibility in the water is 30 m, but sometimes it can reach 50 m.
Cave de Jeroni near Mallorca. When you get inside through the large entrance, you will descend for 18 metres, and you reach a large cave with an air pocket. You will discover a lake with an abundance of stalactites here.
Ibiza is the site of the largest shipwreck with an area of 146 m. The ship "Don Pedro" has become an artificial reef long time ago, and it is a habitat for moray eels, stingrays and shorthorn sculpins.
